NIPFP intends to appoint a senior level Professor to the Reserve Bank of India Chair. Previous Chairs include: Prof. Sudipto Mundle (Member, 14th Finance Commission), Prof. Indira Rajaraman (Member, 13th Finance Commission), Prof. Chandan Mukherjee (Ex-Director, CDS, Thiruvananthapuram), Dr. Poonam Gupta (now with the Chief Economist’s Office, World Bank) and Dr. Ila Patnaik, Professor, NIPFP. This is a very senior position which provides a unique opportunity to work with stakeholders in Government and the international policy community, and in close collaboration with the RBI, Ministry of Finance and the State Governments at the highest policy making level. The RBI Professor will be part of a vibrant policy community with resources to produce and disseminate policy research in India, and globally. We are looking for a person with an impeccable academic and policy record and with the desire to guide and augment policy oriented research in areas relevant to the Institute’s vision, mandate and policy programme. We expect the Professor to be 45 years of age but this is relaxable for younger dynamic economists, if deemed appropriate, by the Selection Committee.
